Forum: forums Subject: Re: Archive dates for .pdf

You mean the numbers in the archive url are transparent? Well, I don't really have you and me here and now in mind: it took me about a week of occasional head-scratching before I first posted here to spot that pattern of numbers, and I'm no programmer, but I've been around a while and I eventually noticed that the numbers were there for those who look. Really, I'm thinking of the formal process of referencing: if a date isn't explicit, then it's effectively guesswork and all but worthless; just a sentence in the FAQs would fix that. Then there are those who have no clue about creating a web archive, but rely on the resource for research in other useful areas...! Sorry to go on, I just wanted to clarify why it bothers me – thanks very much for the tip, very kind of you, I'll see what the staff have to say. Cheers.
